A student is assigned a faculty member from his or her major department to serve as advisor in the selection of courses, changes in schedule, and all other academic matters. Undeclared students have faculty/academic advisors assigned as well. The student meets with the academic advisor during the regularly scheduled advising period each semester to review academic progress and select courses for the coming semester. During the registration period advisor signs the registration form which the student presents in order to enroll in classes. All advisors have office hours so the student should contact the advisor whenever information or an opinion on an academic matter is needed. Refer to the Academic Advising Handbook online or the Academic Success Center for further information.
Faculty advisors must approve all courses taken off-campus using appropriate forms available in the Office of the Registrar.
Once you have declared a major/minor in education you will be assigned an advisor in your education major/minor. This will be in addition to your advisor in your second major. If you have questions throughout the semester you should contact your advisor for further information.
Right before general registration we have a pre-registration period for all declared education major/minors. There will be a sign up sheet on the bulletin board outside the department. You should locate the sheet with your advisor’s name at the top and find a time slot convenient for you. Pre-registration allows you to register for education classes and prerequisite classes before they are open to students of other majors. Once you have activated your pin number with the Education Department secretary and the registration date has arrived you can enter the website and register for classes.
If you have not been assigned an advisor, stop by room S226/ S227, and we will be happy to assign one to you.
